I checked my ESXI's and they do not have this update installed.
I'm just scared to manually update, because it says that impact will be a reboot.
Although I have vsphere HA, do I need to scare to do any reboot to the esxi's?

Hi Shlomi,

Put your ESXi Host into maintenance mode before you apply updates, that way you are sure your production will not be harmed. After the ESXi Hosts has rebooted you can take it out of maintenance mode again.
When everything is ok you can proceed with the other hosts in your cluster...

[MERGED] File Share Witness fails because of backupping

Veeam Logoby petteripasanen » Tue May 23, 2017 7:43 pm

I've set up SQL Cluster which has File Share Witness pointing to FileServer where I store SQL Backups.
When Veeam is finishing backupping this FileServer the File Share Witness fails arbitrate the share because it can't connect to it which then leads Cluster Service shutting down because quorum was lost which then leads SQL Servers in Cluster to terminate unexpectedly.

How can I limit the affect Veeam has on the server it's backupping? I've tried enabling storage latency control but that didn't help.
